2 Recall's (brakes and spoiler)

Post by RedRoc » Fri Jan 11, 2019 2:06 pm

I have been notified of 2 recalls today, affecting our Troc.

1. Safety recall for brake software - apparently, quote "an unintentional release of the electronic parking brake may occur", when, quote "ignition on, temperatures <5°C, Auto hold function not activated".

2. Rear spoiler - top and bottom sections may come apart and fall off.

Booked in for doing, but wondered if anyone had same?

Were you notified by your supplying dealer or VW directly?

Had the recall for the electronic brake done for my car a while ago now. No mention of the rear spoiler, but would probably ask for that to be done at service end of May if I get another letter for that...

Got a letter about the brakes, but told by dealer about spoiler when booking in (not classed as a safety recall). I've looked at the spoiler and it's looks/feels well fitted together so will discuss with dealer when it goes in - don't like the idea of things being forced apart to mend (if you get my concern).
